Dear IMAC Families, As you are aware, Governor DeWine has issued a mandatory school closure due to COVID-19 starting Tuesday, March 17th through Friday, April 3rd. Teacher Professional Development Day is still scheduled for Monday, March 16th , so there will still be no school that day also. This letter is to inform you of instructions regarding your child’s online learning. All students will be expected to log in to their normal EdMentum coursework, for a minimum of 5 hours a day. Online attendance will be monitored, and your child may be counted absent for that day, if they are not actively working for 5 hours. EdMentum can be accessed from ANY online device, including cell phones. The library, as well as several local restaurants, offer free Wi-Fi. We are also including information regarding low-cost internet plans. School staff will continue to be available for any questions through the EdMentum messaging system. You may also call the school at 419-525-0105, and we will respond within 24 hours. Cleveland Food Bank items will still be available to be picked up on Thursdays between 12 and 1 pm. We continue to get updates from Ohio Department of Education regarding this situation and will keep everyone updated as we receive more information in this ongoing process. Your cooperation is integral to the ongoing public health response to try to slow spread of this virus. We understand teenagers are going to want to be out and about doing things with their friends during this period of being out of school, but please remember to keep their contact with other people limited to help slow the spread. Thank you, IMAC Administration Team

Our enrollment is open to any student entitled to attend school per ORC Section 3313.64 or 3313.65; we will not discriminate in admission; we will not exceed the capacity of the school’s programs, classes, grade levels or facilities; and shall admit students by lot if the number of applicants exceeds the school’s capacity. Students are residents of Richland County, behind academically, at risk of dropping out of high school, or have dropped out of high school and have not obtained a GED. They are 16 through 22 years of age and in 9th through 12th grade.

The framework of our educational program is structured to meet Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the New Revised State Standards to prepare our students for state assessments and make them college and career ready. It is primarily a brick and mortar computer based school with onsite certified teachers in each classroom. Flexible scheduling, individualized learning plans and a supportive climate are essential for our dropout prevention/recovery population to achieve success academically, socially, and emotionally. When creating individual learning plans; we determine academic and behavioral needs by formative/summative assessment and behavioral surveys and SWIS data. Portfolios are used collaboratively by the student and teacher to facilitate and document course placement/completion, charting growth across the curriculum in areas of proficiency and deficiency. We foster a supportive climate by implementing Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) building wide. Wraparound services are provided through our partnerships with Family Life and Psychological Services, the Urban Minority Alcohol and Drug Abuse Outreach Program (UMADAOP), Richland County Juvenile Justice Center, Richland County Children Services and the Domestic Violence Shelter. We are a safe and non-threatening learning environment which supports social and character development in our students. Across the curriculum all teachers integrate higher order questioning strategies to develop higher order thinking skills at every grade level in each student. Reading and math are integrated into all subjects. Course work is both relevant and applicable to the students beyond the classroom and technology is incorporated as a tool to support lesson delivery and data use. We differentiate instruction and individualize educational plans based on student needs. Computer based programing provides prescriptive lesson paths for each student and may be used as a primary or supplemental resource to teach the academic curriculum. We are easily accessible to the student population with the greatest need for the unique educational program we offer.
